for fun: Do/Would you still put on all your makeup and decent clothes if you are quarantined


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon to you all.🙂  Melody, beautiful flowers and I have the same question.......how are they growing so well if you just had a snow fall?

 

Kat, I LOVE lox, eggs and onions too......been years since I have even thought about it though since nobody here makes it. You just gave me a great idea when I go to Chicago next month......I bet there is a good Jewish Deli there that would have it!!!

 

Got my new shoes yesterday and they are comfy......I put them on without socks just to see the feel......pretty cushiony but I will still wear them with socks when walking.

 

Anyway, I am in shorts and a t shirt. 

 

Have a good rest of the day.

Well, last night we had our first dinner out in a restaurant in 16 months and a week (but who's counting)?? 

 

It was heavenly to sit and chat while efficient people whisked plates of food to us (at actual cooking temperature!) and then whisked them away again. We went Italian (of course!); we started with a shared fresh seafood fritti, then I had gnocchi in a cream sauce with crispy bits of prosciutto and DS went northern Italian and had a big ol' cotoletta Milanese (schnitzel) the size of his plate!  Half of that came home for a sandwich today.

 

I also discovered a new French Chardonnay that I really like. So yeah -- happy evening for us. 😁

Yay on the dinner "out."  

 

What is this French Chard?

Beautiful flowers but I’m confused.  How are they growing?  Didn’t you just have snow a few days ago?

We cover the rose bushes (with burlap & large planters)  & bring the other plants in the garage if freezing temps/snow

Melody - nice flowers!   I'm surprised my tulips are still standing; the snows weren't enough this year to mash them down.  

Hey - could you give me some ideas for non-Italian restaurant for dinner?  Any of the brewpubs good?  One of my friends has celiac so most Italian places don't have enough options.   I really want to push the girls to the East Coast Deli for breakfast!  I took a look at the menu and fell in love.  Lox, eggs & onions is one of my all-time favorites.  No one has it up here - I used to wait until I got to our place down in Arizona and went to Chompies for breakfast.  

 

I'm going to out for a little hike in the hills behind my house - things have dried out enough that it's not muddy.   So, the OOTD will be a pair of leggings and a Tshirt.  My Cotopaxi waist bag will be the accessory to hold my phone and water.  And, of course, a baseball hat.  

All of the brew pubs are great (I don’t drink beer so never think of them). Our favorite downtown is Jack Quinn’s Irish Pub (fabulous fish n chips) on Tejon. Phantom Canyon is pretty good. Colorado Mountain Brewery is very good. Texas Roadhouse if you’re hankering for a reasonably priced steak; The Famous (on Tejon) if you want to splurge. Rudy’s BBQ on Hwy 24 always good. Wines of Colorado on Hwy 24 good food & wine. Melody

Thanks!   Sometimes brew pubs have a food selection that can satisfy everyone, so I like to have one in my pocket when we start discussing where to eat.    My next dilemma is what to pack for the girls' trip part of my trip!  Camping attire is easy - I can even wear the same thing multiple times.  But, I guess I need to do some "city" clothes, too.  I'm going to pack 2 little bags - one for camping stuff and 1 for city stuff.   I pulled out my one pair of jeans and they do fit, so maybe I can get away with a couple of shirts to go with them for nights in the city.  I have my overalls too.  They were cute enough to wear to work, so they should be good enough to wear in the city.   Oh this should be fun!

 

Have you even eaten in Alamosa?  

 

sorry ladies for the hijack.  

OOTD:  my Athleta Farralon camo shorts (a bit big in the legs, but I tie the waist down enough tht they stay up) and a Tshirt.

True Grit Steakhouse in Alamosa. Best Margarita ever!  San Luis potatoes (huge), great steaks. Yes, it’s all John Wayne memorabilia. Anything goes for clothing in Colorado Springs

Hi girls, Melody, beautiful🙂

 

I had my mind set on those new shoes........one of those things I just wanted. I have a pair of "Earth Origins"  they are fisherman's sandals......here is a picture of the one's I own.

Mine are pretty worn out.....I wear them every morning to walk.  I just found them at Famous Footwear!  I decided to get them in Navy and will be bringing them on my cruise to Greece.  Normally I am not this fixed on shoes but oh well, I am happy now😀  They are really comfortable.

I like the look of these but....they didn't have my size in stock at my local FF -- rather than ordering & having to return them I went in today & tried on my size but in blue.  Glad I did 'cause I didn't really like the color of the brown.  Ordered a pair of gray ones----can't beat free shipping.

Hi Ladies!  doing my 10 second pop in lol ;)  

 

 Kat the trip you are planning sounds like FUN!  (except the camping part for me, lol )

 

Lois, I really like those shoes & they will be perfect for your trip!

 

I booked my birthday trip to San Diego yesterday!  So excited, I will take the train down & meet up with Steve as he'll be doing a two day fishing trip ahead... (this is for the beginning of July)    the mask mandate ends here on June 15th...  & everything gets to open back up then, so it should be a nice, normalish trip :)

We’ve had over 3” of rain this week. Pikes Peak (elevation 14,115’) got about 18-20” of fresh snow. Picture from my driveway. Melody

How's everyone?  We have a nice sunny but HOT weekend here, and the outdoor bugs are starting to reach summer levels. Translation: not much fun to be outside unless near a pool!

 

Did my final "cleanout" at work on Thursday. From what we hear, they may start having people go back in to work soon -- but only at a 10% capacity. Where I work they are not mandating vaccination (except for some "essential" worker roles) but that means they are also retaining masking and distancing for now. I don't foresee anything approaching normality until after Labor Day.

 

Starting to think about a trip to visit family around 4th of July. Other than that I currently have nothing scheduled until late November. Will my Algeria trip be a go?  Stay tuned....  I at least feel semi-confident and am starting to do my pre-trip "research". 🧐

Hi girls, yesterday I went out to lunch with 2 friends I had not seen in a long time......we went to Outback.  It was pretty good. I haven't been there in quite a while.  While we were sitting, chatting,

the waitress walked by and then all of a sudden, we heard a THUMP.........she fell on the floor😲.....she wasn't carrying any food but it was quite scary........thankfully she did not hit her head but rather her elbows.........what a weird thing it was........she slipped actually.

 

Looks like you folks in CA are getting ready to open all back up! Sharon and Debbie, I imagine you are waiting for that 😃.....I saw a story on the news that they are trying to get more folks vaxed and are going to be giving away Hamilton Tickets, Laker's Tickets, etc........hoping it will bring more people out for their shots.
